ReTag Post-Extension 0.11 for UTW (dont use anymore!)

This Plugin is no longer being updated. Please update your Weblog zu WP 2.3 and use the great SimpleTags-Plugin. There is a Page for Massediting which does exactly what I did and better!

Note for german readers: Zielgruppengerecht ist dieses Post ausnahmsweise in englisch.

New Version 0.11 — see below.

I use the Ultimate Tag Warrior-Plugin for WordPress here at flyingsparks and at and its a great tool!

But there was one thing I really needed: An easy and fast way to review and change the tags of my posts.

And since I needed to spend some time with different things than scoutpress here it is:



Put the PHP-File in your UTW-Plugin-Directory and activate it. Go to the Manage-Menu and find „ReTag" next to the UTW-Tag-Menu.

Note: This Extension needs UTW to run of course.



Thats what I would like to see in this extension some day. Unfortunatelly I dont know how to implement it. Hopefully someone of you will work on this…

To Be Checked

This is the 0.11-Release so please have a close look if you find any error. There are quite some things that should be optimized. Please help to improve this extension and send your code via eMail.

Here is some stuff that has to be checked

    I tried your plug in and got the following error:

    any ideas what went wrong?

    Hi Dave.
    Cannot tell you at the moment?
    Do you have the latetest UTW up and running?
    And an current WP (2.0.2+)?

    As far as I remember I use the UTW-Include-PHP to do the includes so this should be fine.
    Would have to look closer with these information.

    very useful plugin…

    In my case I have to re-tag twice every 15 posts in order to be memorised. I don't know why :)

  5. MerlinNo Gravatar ( 02.09.06 19:52 Direktlink

    Re Dave's problem: make sure you have installed the ReTag plugin in the UTW directory; I had it one level up („wp-content/plugins/") and got the same error.

    […] Flying Sparks bietet ein interessantes Zuatzplugin für Ultimate Tag Warrior (WordPress-Tagging Plugin). Mit ReTag kann man recht einfach Tags nachbearbeiten. Leider, leider für mich nicht einsetzbar. Denn vom Prinzip her werden die letzten 15 Postings angezeigt, die dort vergebenen Tags und daneben alle Tags, die man jemals vergeben. Nun kann man sich bildlich vorstellen, wie das ausschaut, wenn 15 Postings und jeweils 1447 Tags geladen werden. Auf einem Bildschirm. Der Browser wäre fast vor lauter Links abgeschmiert :) […]

    […] She also suggested the retag-post-extension-for-utw plugin which I installed and found that it helps immensely in tagging and re-tagging posts. More on this later but for anyone new to using UTW, once you get it up and running with no glitches and are faced with the task of adding tags to all your previous posts, this is the plugin you want. many thanks Christine.

    […] Actually it was quite a relief seeing how I had been mucking about with that marvelous UTW plugin and the Re-tag extension that works alongside of it. Thought I had inadvertently messed something up again I did. […]

    First i have to say I really appreciated the convenience offered by your fine plugin. It made tagging so much easier.

    Unfortunately, once I upgraded to WordPress 2.1, the plugin no longer functioned and I had to deactivate it. In short, the ‚Re-Tag' page under the ‚Manage Menu' only would show the first page of recent posts and the ‚Previous Entries' does not work. Although the link URL indicates that it's linking to the next set of pages, it still only returns the first page of posts.

    I tried to include the returned URL's in this comment before but the comment was rejected, apparently for that reason.

    I really miss the features of this great plugin so if you ever get a chance to test it out in WordPress 2.1 and come up with a workaround, that would be great. I do not know how to code per say but I have no problem following instructions and hacking the code.

    Sehr praktisch! But it seems that the „Previous posts" link is not working. In my install the linked URL includes a long list of seemingly irrelevant stuff (tags that I use, actually), like this:
